Tooth Color Selection
The determination & selection of the correct color of your teeth is one of the most important work steps in the production of dentures. Teeth are never alike; they are composed of various colors and shades, which have to be considered when creating dental substitutes such as crowns, veneers or dentures. Even in your own mouth, teeth have different colorings. Your dentist determines the correct shade with the help of a dental color scale and then transmits this information to a qualified dental technician. It's always recommended to be examined by the dental technician himself; his experience should ensure the best color results. Nevertheless, by using the color key, your dentist can deliver advanced information, such as: level of brightness (Value), color intensity (Chrome) and color tone (Hue). The color of teeth is very individual and not only white as you can often notice in patients with old dental crowns. Learn more about dental color selection in this video!
